Squad by James B Wharton 1st / 1st 1929
London: John Lane The Bodley Head (1929). First UK edition of this war novel in very near fine condition. The stunning wrapper has very little if any wear at all. There is the tiniest amount of wear to the top of the spine otherwise it is immaculate.
The oatmeal fabric boards are very clean and there is only the slightest of foxing marks. Overall it is a superb copy with the rare dust wrapper.
The wrapper was designed by artist Wendell Galloway.
War-chronicle of an American eight man squad at the front during the First World War and their adventures. Based loosely on the author’s experiences with the 111th Infantry Regiment, 28th Division.
A rare title and highly regarded for the detail provided on an American infantry unit in the war.
It is particularly rare in very near fine condition.
